Villa Le Prata 2015 Brunello di Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy

Villa Le Prata was built in 1860 by Count De’ Vecchi as a hunting lodge. Afterwards it became the countryside home for the bishop of Moltalcino. In 1980 Massimo Losappio, chief surgeon of Montalcino hospital and his wife Marialuce, a philosophy teacher, purchased the Villa and, driven by their passion for wine and the pleasure to share with their friends the fruits of this generous land, planted the first hectare of vineyard. Only top quality Sangiovese Grosso grapes are selected to make this Brunello, and Villa Le Prata is still a very small estate run by the family members who work with passion to express the terroir of Montalcino.  ⁠

  • Winemaker: Benedetta Losappio

  • Farming: Sustainable

     

  • Varieties: Sangiovese Grosso

     

  • Soil / Terroir: Mixed Clay

     

  • Vinification: Fermentation under  controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks for about 20 days, with 8-10  soft daily pump-overs.. Aging: One year in French oak  tonneaux (110 gallons), 3 years in 60 gallons Slavonian oak barrels.

  • Tasting Notes: Medium to full bodied, this powerful and structured Sangiovese is still in it's youth, ready to be cellared for up to 15-20 years. Aromas of sour black cherry, currants, stewed tomato, crushed oregano and saddle leather pop from the glass, and the taut acidity is framed by pressing tannins that will integrate with aging.
